    NN Anderson Cooper and Democratic strategist Angela Rye are CAUGHT PROTECTING #CrookedHillary by challenging Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany's "widely reported" #CrookedHillary's actions in her court-appointed defense of an accused child rapist.

    Anderson Cooper stated that CNN did not have any "corroboration" of the story when in fact CNN's The Lead reported on this in June of 2014.

    Clinton News Network is supporting Hillary? Color me shocked.


    Of course, the Trump supporter is out of line as well. There are plenty of things to attack Hillary over but doing her job as a lawyer and defending her client is not one of them. The right of the accused to have legal counsel is also a constitutionally protected right.

    The real question is why does this Trump supporter hate one of the very cornerstones of our Constitution and legal system?

    Since we're not holding Trump accountable for lying about being his own publicist we may as well put some blame on Anderson Cooper, because why not.

    The real question is, since when is it the job of a "reporter" to protect a candidate?

    I trust Coop more than George Stephanopolis who donated $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation and takes offense when people question his objectivity.

    I know, I know.. pathologically lying should not be considered in any presidential election. We want our commander-in-chief to act like a womanizing, cheating carnival barker because America.

    It's not. Anderson Cooper isn't a reporter. He's an entertainer. Just like everyone that works at any of these cable entertainment networks that masquerade as news.

    CNN and FOX are news just like "Survivor" is "reality" TV.

    Plus he never ran for president, unlike half of the staff (correspondents) over at Fox News did for the Republican party over the last two election cycles.

    And he was impeached, rightfully so. As for his wife, how's that victim blaming working out for you guys so far? With Trump running in the 70% negatives with women I'm guessing not so well.

    Ratings from target audience markets. Providing fair, viable solutions would be just as disliked, for various reasons that go against what they've been cultivated to blanketly believe.

    "The only way a reporter should look at a politician is down." — H.L. Mencken.

    Anderson Cooper was wrong and he should issue a correction, and explain that as a defense lawyer in 1975, Hillary Clinton argued in an affidavit that the victim should be subject to a psychiatric evaluation and attacked her credibility.

    Kayleigh McEnany - What's to dislike? - very smart, articulate, powerful argumentation, patient, respectful, and ....um, what's the word? Ugly! No....that's not it....:)

    If elected, the Secret Service could give him his own MP5.

    Approved! The problem with anyone who actually admits they will vote for Trump is that their intelligence or susceptibility to con men then comes under scrutiny. :) In contrast to below, I'd not expect a happy ending other than if we survive him, we can wipe our brow and thank him for the lesson he taught us. :rolleyes:
